Cold wave conditions are not likely over North India including capital Delhi and Uttar Pradesh for the next four days. However, during the next 24 hours, dense fog will prevail over these areas.

Talking about the weather during the last 24 hours, the cold wave conditions in Delhi got some respite on Tuesday due to a fresh Western Disturbance affecting Northwest India. Due to this, an increase of one to three degree Celsius in temperature was recorded in many areas of North India. Churu in Rajasthan recorded the lowest minimum temperature of 1.5 degree Celsius. However, dense fog reduced visibility to 50 metres, affecting road and rail traffic.
